Bebop Spoken There

Jennifer Wharton: "People forget that the trombone is so glorious. It can be like going to church, or getting ready for battle. It can be a lot of things....For a longtime I was the only female trombonist in New York," - (DownBeat May 2021)

RIP Muhal Richard Abrams

Free Jazz pioneer, Muhal Richard Abrams passed away on October 29 aged 87.  The pianist, multi-instrumentalist/composer and much more made his mark on many genres. I never got to hear him live so I can't make a personal comment. However, his career is well-covered by the Chicago Tribune.
RIP.
Lance.
